I'm a beginner cook and I found this recipe to be a bit challenging. I think it's best suited for experienced cooks.

This dish is best served immediately after it's made. The sauce can start to curdle if it sits for too long.

I served Sole Thermidor with a side of roasted asparagus and it was a perfect pairing.

I'm not a fan of mushrooms, so I omitted them from the sauce. It was still very tasty.

I'm allergic to shellfish. Can I substitute something else for the shrimp in the sauce?

I followed the recipe exactly but my sauce didn't turn out as thick as I expected. Any tips?

The sauce was a bit too rich for my taste, but the sole was cooked perfectly.

Sole Thermidor was a hit at my dinner party! The delicate flavor of the sole was perfectly complemented by the rich and creamy sauce. My guests raved about it and even asked for the recipe.
